Re: Fence may obstruct light to neighbour

Just to conclude this; I'm not buying this property so the possible issue with the fence is no issue any more.

MacadamB53 - my decision has nothing to do with the barky dog. :)

Re: Old fence is collapsing

1) Yes, always use a gravel board. They are sacrificial as they are easier to replace than lots of feather edged boards or fence panels. You can also get concrete gravel boards. 2) The best fence for keeping out vegetation is a wall. 8) Even then, the vegetation will grow over it. Otherwise farm str...

Re: Fence may obstruct light to neighbour

Thanks for the link Collaborate and I got to page 5. 8) A problem would only arise if the neighbour objected to a new fence: so this morning I asked them. I explained where the fence would go and that it would be 2m high. The chap said he'd have no problem with that and asked if I would get rid of t...

Fence may obstruct light to neighbour

I am considering buying the bungalow on the right in the picture. The next door bungalow is very close to the boundary and the side facing my potential home has three windows facing me. If I buy it, one of the first jobs would be to erect a fence along the portion of the boundary between the bungalo...

Re: Shed and Permitted Development Rights

I make the area 254.5ft², which is 23.6m²

But I have no intention of erecting a silo. It would look a little odd in an urban back garden. :)

Re: Shed and Permitted Development Rights

Unless permitted development rights have been withdrawn for your property as a result possibly of any previous planning applications granted / developments etc. (as is my case!) Then, technically, you would need to make an application. Paddock Thanks Paddock. I had checked that part and my house st...

Re: Shed and Permitted Development Rights

Thank you pilman. Your replies are most helpful. :D

Building the shed, just one to start with, will be the easier part. It's just a shame that I can no longer install the electrics.

Shed and Permitted Development Rights

Can I please check my understanding of Permitted Development Rights regarding building a shed in my back garden. I've read the stuff in the planning portal but it would be nice to confirm things. Planning Portal says: 1. Single storey, max eaves height 2.5m. Max height 4.0m with a dual pitched roof,...

Re: Encroaching ivy on neighbour

Whilst the ivy may have grown over, through or under the fence, it is also spread by birds that eat the berries. Who's to say which has resulted in the spread to your neighbour's garden, or which part of what has spread is due to simple growth or new plants from the seeds?

Re: Welsh govt. doubles council tax for English owners

How can that sort of injustice be perpetrated in the UK? There's also the injustice of someone owning more than one home, living in only one of them and leaving the other(s) empty. There's lots of options: 1. Do what span suggests 2. Sell up with the best will possible. Perhaps try to make sure it ...

Re: Legal Position

As a contrast: Let's say your neighbour bought a new car earlier this year. The tree contractor scuffed the bumper of the car. Notwithstanding being somewhat annoyed, your neighbour might demand a replacement car but he'd get a suitable repair. What is correct in the eyes of the law? I'm not sure bu...

Re: gardening curb

Morally - I think not.

Legally - probably yes.

What you are doing is commonly called "guerrilla gardening".

If you look for that term on the search engine of your choice (or Google), there's lots of information. :)
